Who I Serve
I service entrepreneurs primarily in the USA, though I do handle international clients on occasion. My process allows me to work remotely or to travel to my clients when needed.
I have a passion for helping others meet their goals, whether that means getting a bank loan, landing investor funding, or clarifying marketing strategy for their business.
Where I Live
I currently live in the Houston, Texas area with my son and daughter. Before living in Houston, I lived in the Chicagoland area. I prefer the heat to the winter chill any day!
Active Credentials & Affiliations
What I’ve Been Up To
As a parent with a young son and daughter (one of whom has special needs), to say that I stay pretty busy is a severe understatement! When I’m not spending time with my family, I try to stay active in local entrepreneur events and organizations and sponsor community events whenever possible, including the Houston version of Shark Tank by STARTHouston, Houston Area Urban League Entrepreneur series, and my local SCORE events. I am also the resident Pitch Consultant for multiple investment networks.
How I am Progressing as an Entrepreneur (and business plan professional)
On January 20, 2017 I left the stability of my career with GE (General Electric) in Business Development as a Commercial Proposals Manager. I followed the next steps of my own business plan and launched full time as a Business Plan Consultant, a side job I’ve been loving since 2009.
As a business plan and marketing professional, I constantly recognize great opportunities and have started and currently manage multiple businesses, including Written Success, plus a real estate company, car wash, and distribution businesses. I’m also working on launching a new business that will help clearly identify people with cognitive disabilities, which will help save lives due to simple misunderstandings in emergency situations.
And yes, each of these businesses has a business plan and clear marketing strategy : )
Every endeavor I pursue allows me even more first hand knowledge in a variety of industries so I can better service my business plan clients.
Besides spending as much time with my family as possible, I also love to play the piano, like to read (hardcopy preferred over ebooks), and enjoy almost anything outdoors, especially bike riding and horseback riding. I am an INFJ personality type and by nature, tend to advocate for the success in others.
I completely empathize with my clients who have “taken the leap” into entrepreneurship. It takes guts to turn a passion into a day job. There is a mix of fear, exhilaration, and lots of unknowns. I feel so grateful that I am able to better support my clients with my similar experience. Most importantly, I love knowing that my business assists in the creation and success of countless other businesses.
